You asked for it, so we (finally) delivered.
On behalf of all of us here at PitchBook, we are super excited to announce the launch of two brand new product offerings: The PitchBook API and the PitchBook Datafeed, making it possible to get our venture capital, private equity and M&A data—directly.
With this, API and Datafeed clients can access our company, professionals, investors and deal data outside of the PitchBook Platform, and bring it into their existing tools, systems and software in a way that is both efficient and cost-effective.
“For the last nine years we’ve focused on taking great data and delivering it through an intuitive and insightful user interface—and we know we're on the right track with the PitchBook Platform," said Angus Fan, Director of Product at PitchBook. "Our API and Data Feed products came out of our dedication to always pursue better ways to meet the needs of our customers, In this case, a better way came down to providing our clients with the flexibility to access to our raw data directly to more deeply integrate it into their custom application workflows.”
The PitchBook API gives firms a more flexible, à la carte solution enabling them to bring in specific data points as needed. Datafeed, on the other hand, is a solution for those who require a wider range of information on a consistent basis. Of course, our flagship and award-winning workstation, the PitchBook Platform, is available for those who have more traditional research and analysis needs.
"We’re always looking for better ways to serve our customers and we understand the value of having data how you want it, whenever and wherever you need it. Both our API and Datafeed products meet those needs," said Founder and CEO, John Gabbert. "This makes it easy for our clients to leverage our data in the most efficient and productive ways possible, so they can focus on their job, their goals and ultimately their efforts to build the great companies of tomorrow.”
